Bad weather stops play
We have been unable to provide a service a couple of days this week because of bad weather. Basically, once wind speed gets above Force 7/8 it is dangerous for the boat coming up against the slipways so we have to stop running. Occasionally with a northerly wind, even Force 5/6 can be a problem. We are sorry if we have disappointed anyone, but we can't control the Highlands and Islands weather, much as we'd like to.
